The Best of JDC in 2015

    With the start of a new year, it gives us a chance to look back at the previous 365 days.

    I love going through old posts and remembering what happened throughout the year.  So here are the highlights and favorite posts from 2015:


    The year started off with an introduction of sorts. I forget that many of you are new readers, so it was fun to fill you in on who I am, in bullet points.

    A house down the street identical to ours went up for sale, so I compared the two. Before + Afters are always great.

    We organized our phones:

    We learned a new trick to keep hydrangeas from wilting (it really works!):

    1. Congrats on a wonderful year! I’ve been following you since the start of your blog years ago and have gained so much inspiration from your posts. Cheers to a happy new year!

    2. Emily,
      There is a lot to love about your posts. I have only been following you for a couple months, so it will take a few days to digest your highlights of jdc for 2015. I’m thrilled with what I learned about hydrangeas. Thank you for highlighting that post! I’m also very excited to try your chocolate chip cookie recipe. I had your chocolate chip pumpkin bread printable printed and have used it for gift giving with your yummy recipe, as a thank you card for a foodie friend, and as a postcard to another foodie. I am interested in your blogging class, and presume you will be disclosing price and setting up registration soon. You are a blessing!

    3. I love this post. It makes me want to set some amazing goals and photograph them. Lol. It looks like you had a wonderful 2015! :)
